Session Description

Uniting people from different backgrounds is a key enabler of innovation. A Boston Consulting Group study found that companies with more diverse management teams have 19% higher revenues due to innovation. Diversity doesn’t just benefit people from diverse backgrounds, it benefits the entire organisation by generating greater creativity and innovation in the workplace. Yet, innovation is about more than diverse management teams – we are now entering an era in which AI is increasingly acting on our behalf to make decisions, STEM careers are still proving broadly unappealing to young girls and female founders still face systemic barriers to be taken seriously by investors. This eye-opening session will provide an informed perspective on how we can work together to ensure that one day, innovation serves everyone’s interests equally.
